I am sure that most of you know that one can fly anywhere on Earth on Google Earth. You can view sattelite imagery, maps, terrain, 3D buildings, from galaxies in outer space to the canyons of the ocean, you can explore rich geographical and Historical content, save record your tour and share it with others.

Google Earth is a fun Skills For Life resource, supporting Literacy and Numeracy skills development.

 

There are loads of different things you can do with your class using Google Earth, such as viewing a satellite picture of your chosen location by typing in an address; searching for colleges, museums, parks, restaurants, hotels; getting and giving directions; tilting and rotating to see 3D terrain and buildings; measuring shapes, space and distance; reading and writing descriptions of places; and also reading and printing out driving directions.

 

Google Earth is free and no registration is required. Visit  http://earth.google.com/ to download and install Google.
